Reviewed August 26, 2013

I would recommend "Cabana" for those people, who are looking for a short and cheap stay in Clacton-on-Sea with a good location. It's a very small guest house, the owners are very friendly, who give the feeling more like a home from home than a guest house :) We have spend there one night at the beginning of August, the room was very clean and bright, the only one minus was that it was really cold at night, because the wind was very strong that night and it was blowing straight into our room, we have double checked if we haven't left the window open.
Every room there has a private bathroom, but bathrooms are not in the room, you have to cross the corridor. Personally, it was the only one thing that I didn't like, but otherwise it's not the end of the world just for 1-2 night stay and knowing that you pay just 50 GBP for a night.
Lovely place, only few minutes away from the beach, friendly and nice owners, what could be better!

Sorry about the "breeze" we don't feel it down here and hope it didn't spoil your stay too much. We have had unusual weather here lately. Very hot during the day and sometimes a cold wind off the sea at night. Thanks for the comments and hope to see you again.

We had 3 rooms as we were attending a family wedding. Our rooms were all cleaned and ready for us when we arrived early. We found the rooms very clean. The breakfast was very nice too. Catherine was very friendly and made us feel at home.

Our stay at the Cabana was great, I could not fault the cleanliness of the whole place and nothing was to much trouble for the hosts, who put in over 100% to make it feel more like a home from home than a guest house.

I stayed at the Cabana with my 12 year old and 6 week old sons from the 1st to the 3rd of August. The location is great and is close to the beach, not at all far from the town, arcades and pier and there is a carvery across the road. Mark and Catherine were most helpful before my stay when ringing, when we arrived we was greeted by them. They both are a really cheery couple and that immediately put me in a good mood after a long, hot and tiring journey. We was shown to our room which was clean, nicely decorated and had a nice en suite with a decent shower (!). The whole place felt really homely. There is a good variety of cereals for breakfast and the full english that they do is very nice, certainly set me and my 12 year old up for the day. I was late for breakfast on the second morning and was kindly cooked one (I was so chuffed with that because they didn't have to do that and there was cereal still out). Nothing seemed too much trouble for them and I left wishing I'd of booked an extra night. We will definitely be back (should we be allowed) and will recommend this place to anyone. I had stayed at another guest house in Clacton a few weeks previous and though the other was good, the Cabana outshone the other guest house. Excellent value for money, lovely family, good breakfast, cosy rooms and comfy beds.... Impressed is an understatement.

We stayed at the Cabana for one night on the 27th July, and found the hosts Mark and Catherine to be really friendly, and the guest house spotlessly clean and comfortable. The location is fabulous, overlooking the bowling green and out to the beach and sea. The breakfast was really great, with everything you could wish for. We have family in this area and will definitely be happy to stay here again. Thanks again to Mark and Catherine for making our short stay so enjoyable. :0) x

Room Tip: If you can, do book a room at the front of the guesthouse, the view is fabulous.

Stayed at the cabana just for the night on the 5th July as we travelled all the way from Birmingham and even though we came down really late, (did let them know beforehand when he told me not the watch a certain film!) Mark stayed up for us and greeted us with a smile and took us to our room. Room was basic and necessary for our needs, we didn't need anything fancy and just somewhere to rest, it was actually better than i had expected which is always good. Breakfast was beautiful in the morning, included in the price of the room and was greeted with a smile from both hosts and asked what we wanted to eat. Asked about the best places to get fish and chips and to see in the local area and they were very helpful. Left us with a funny comment as he thought my partner looked like mo farah! Would definately return, was a lovely experience :)

The mighty mo and his lovely beau. I could write reams of nice things about this couple but in the short time we met I think it best to say that you could stay friends for life with these guys. God bless you both.
